Former President Trump is teasing that his supporters will be “very happy” with his decision on whether to run in the 2024 White House race.
“The answer is I’m absolutely enthused. I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time,” Trump told Candace Owens when asked if he plans on launching a 2024 bid. Trump’s response is part of an interview airing Tuesday on “Candace,” Owens’s Daily Wire talk show, ITK can exclusively report.
“As you know, it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement,” Trump told Owens.
You know for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing,” he continued.
Formally declaring his candidacy would open Trump up to required financial disclosure forms and election laws that would dictate how he can raise and spend money in the meantime.
“Otherwise I think I’d give you an answer that you’d be very happy with. So we’re looking at that very, very seriously,” he said, before adding, “All I’d say is: stay tuned.”
The former president’s interview with Owens marks the first time he’s indicated that his supporters would be “happy” with his 2024 choice.
